Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Shane Lowry
Viktor Hovland may not be the favorite for the gold medal, but he is one of Ryan Pohle's favorite bets on the board.
Collin Morikawa enters his first Olympics on a tear, and according to Len Hochberg, that's not the only reason to add him to your lineups for this week's contests on DraftKings.
Collin Morikawa cruised to his second major championship over the weekend. Where does that leave him among the top performers in big-time events over the past 12 months?
Louis Oosthuizen figures to be in plenty of DFS lineups this week, but according to Bryce Danielson, that shouldn't stop you from looking his way in Yahoo contests for the final major of the year.
Rory McIlroy has shined in this event, and Ryan Pohle is willing to wager he will snap a seven-year winless drought in major championships.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
Lowry's disappointing 2017-18 saw zero top-10s and only four top-25s in 19 starts on the PGA Tour. The burly Irishman has flashed signs of talent in big tournaments, but his limited play on the PGA Tour along with his poor performance the past two seasons makes him a menacing pick in most fantasy golf formats. As such, his outlook for next season looks similar to the past two, though he should strike a top-10 at some point if he can find his rhythm for four consecutive rounds.
Lowry's body of work saw no near-wins last season and a rank outside the top 125, a clear disappointment coming off a $1,585,436 season the year prior. Fortunately for him, his 2015 WGC-Bridgestone victory granted him a three-year exemption that will extend his fully exempt PGA Tour status through the 2017-18 season. After nearly winning the U.S. Open in 2016, the burly Irishman has posted just one top-10, so it's clear Lowry comes with some volatility. Further increasing his risk has been a limited schedule of 17 or less PGA Tour events the last three seasons, so be warned that his above average talent comes with downside as well.
Lowry's first full-season on the PGA Tour was mostly a success, but it could have been so much better if not for a disastrous final-round at the U.S. Open. Lowry, a season European Tour veteran, dipped his toes in the PGA Tour pond for the first time last season and at $1.5 million in earnings, it had to be classified as a success, but a major-win would have catapulted him into an entirely different stratosphere. With that said, his loss is the salary cap player's gain as his price is very reasonable heading into this season. It would be nice to see some added consistency this season, but that can be expected after getting acclimated last year. In draft leagues, he should be taken in the sixth or seventh round.
Lowry, a 22-year-old from Ireland, is ranked 16th in the World Amateur Golf Rankings as of mid-May 2009. He is being urged to declare himself as a professional by Darren Clarke and Rory McIlroy.
